Not getting one because I'm an elite.

Why can't my dog count as a dependent?

My general distrust for the government means I always have them mail my refund check rather than give them my bank info, so I'll be waiting a while, but I don't need the check anyway.
The PPP loan we've applied for as we're paying our workers to stay home on the other hand we'll need soon or that decision could bankrupt us.

This is bad real bad

The President does not have this authority. This will change our country forever

He thinks he's a dictator like his buddies in Russia and N. Korea.

Funny how he was all for states to figure out how to get their own PPE supplies, but now he wants to exert his authority.

The states have all authority not specifically given to the federal government- therefore this is a decision of the governors not the President. Trump calling the Governors mutinous is a; I can’t even come up with the words

For the record, I think Magnus consistently displays being an independent conservative, and not in the humorous sense. Don’t always agree, but I continue to appreciate the consistency at the very least.

With that being said, I’ve always dabbled between a nice balance of states and federal powers. Putting aside the legality for now, short of something counter to US foreign policy, I’m not sure why you would ever want executive authority to be able to override a state. Note that this is executively, not judicially.

Heck, I haven’t even gotten my tax return yet. Filed over a month ago online for direct deposit.

I'm not sure whether mine will direct deposit or not. I filed my taxes a few weeks ago and requested direct deposit, but had not done so in any previous years. I did get my tax return last week.

there's a lot of things you can call that act but "treason" definitely doesn't apply.

I haven't either. You can check the status on IRS.gov Mine finally said refund approved yesterday, and it's supposed to be sent to my bank by April 15th.

I read that they will have an online method for tracking the status of stimulus checks and direct deposits.

We have nothing in place for a plan. It’s why coastal states are banding together (tho i don’t know how the west coast team can pull it off with NV and AZ not being part of it)

Unless something really changes in the next few weeks, and not a change towards the negative, i think we’re mid June to look at a national ease of lockdowns

In case you haven't met me before, I was being a tad facetious to make a point.

I'm shocked that Bono's last name was available for a new poster 20 years in. Think that would have gone sooner.

Hard to fathom that we have a President engaged in such childish behavior every day during a pandemic and collapse of the economy. The captain? Is he Captain Crunch?

@realDonaldTrump

Tell the Democrat Governors that “Mutiny On The Bounty” was one of my all time favorite movies. A good old fashioned mutiny every now and then is an exciting and invigorating thing to watch, especially when the mutineers need so much from the Captain. Too easy!

Cuomo’s been calling daily, even hourly, begging for everything, most of which should have been the state’s responsibility, such as new hospitals, beds, ventilators, etc. I got it all done for him, and everyone else, and now he seems to want Independence! That won’t happen!
